About the organizations:
NCWIT--The National Center for Women & Information Technology is a non-profit community of more than 500 prominent corporations, academic institutions, government agencies, and non-profits working to increase women's participation in technology and computing. NCWIT helps organizations recruit, retain, and advance women from K-12 and higher education through industry and entrepreneurial careers by providing community, evidence, and action. NCWIT Alliance member institutions tap into a learning community infrastructure that encourages reform across the full education and career spectrum, uniting the computing community with an amplified voice for the increased participation of all groups
CWWK-membership is drawn across the Front Range of Colorado, since its inception in early 2008. Today, Coolest Women is composed of nearly 100 women in Director and above positions representing 90 high-tech companies or companies that serve the high-tech industry. Although, the current group hails from the Denver/Boulder area, Coolest Women encourages and supports women in other areas of the country with the desire to fulfill the Coolest Women mission to establish their own Coolest Women groups in their respective areas. One may want to define a Coolest Woman in ways that can be easily measured and quantified such as holds a senior/executive management position and works for a high-tech company, however, it’s not as simple as that. Cool women are smart, driven, engaging and give back to their community. Defining a Coolest Woman may be easier to qualify than quantify. You’ll know her when you see her, hear her, talk with her, work with her and play with her. You’ll just know.
